From New York Times and internationally bestselling author Isabel Allende, an exquisitely crafted love story and multigenerational epic that sweeps from San Francisco in the present-day to Poland and the United States during the Second World War. The Japanese Lover is a tender story that explores issues of race and identity, abandonment and reconciliation, and centers on two women: elderly, enigmatic Alma and her caretaker, the younger, devoted Irina, who is hiding a dark past. With an intricate, gripping plot that takes readers inside the US internment camps where Japanese Americans were imprisoned during the war, the novel captures both the horrifying acts and the beautiful deeds of which mankind is capable. Here is Isabel Allende at her masterful best.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Instaread on The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende Preview: The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende is a novel that chronicles a forbidden but passionate romance that grows between two people over time, and how this relationship touches the lives of others over the course of several decades. Much of the book is set in San Francisco during and after World War II, when tensions were high between the United States and Japan and between Nazi Germany and European Jews; both conflicts impact the formation of the relationship at the heart of the novel. Irina Bazili is a young girl with no family and a dark past who comes to work at Lark House, a senior residence and home for convalescents. One of her patients is the vivacious screen printer Alma Belasco. Alma takes Irina under her wing as her assistant, and over time Irina comes to learn more about Alma and the reasoning behind some of her mysterious habits, such as disappearing for days at a time unannounced or receiving yellow envelopes and gardenias from anonymous senders… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Fictional depictions of intermarriage can illuminate perceptions of both 'ethnicity' and 'whiteness' at any given historical moment. Popular examples such as Lucy and Ricky in I Love Lucy (1951-1957), Joanna and John in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967), Toula and Ian in My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) helped raise questions about national identity: does 'American' mean 'white' or a blending of ethnicities? Building on previous studies by scholars of intermarriage and identity, this study is an ambitious endeavor to discern the ways in which literature and films from the 1960s through 2000s rework nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century intermarriage tropes. Unlike earlier stories, these narratives position the white partner as the 'other' and serve as useful frameworks for assessing ethnic and American identity. Lauren S. Cardon sheds new light on ethno-racial solidarity and the assimilation of different ethnicities into American dominant culture.
